Two Hand Controls by Banner Engineering

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Jun 22, 2018 11:03:07 AM

Two hand controls are safeguarding devices that are used to keep the operator’s hands away from the point of operation. The modules deactivate as soon as the operator removes one or both hands from the mechanism, thus protecting the worker from injuries. This makes them an important piece of safety equipment on a plant floor.

Banner Engineering has a comprehensive offering of two hand safety modules and buttons, meeting the highest of standards while ensuring top-tier sturdiness and reliability.

Banner Engineering Ultrasonic Sensors

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Jun 12, 2018 2:26:47 PM

Some industry applications are particular tricky, especially stable detection of uneven surfaces, clear objects, or liquids. Light-based sensors can fail to tell the difference between solids and liquids, thus making them unreliable. A better choice for these scenarios is an ultrasonic sensor, which is built for precise measurements between stationary and moving objects.

Banner Engineering understands the importance of being able to precisely measure between objects, and has created several lines of ultrasonic sensors just for that purpose. Each line of sensors fits unique situations so the right sensor can be chosen for the right task.

Banner Engineering Slot Sensors and Part Sensing

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Jun 8, 2018 11:05:01 AM

Slot sensors and part sensing arrays are highly resourceful and utilizable devices that can help industries keep up with their goals of automation. These optical slot sensors are characterized by their forked shape, and detect objects that pass between their two arms, with one being the emitter and the other the receiver. Part sensing arrays are characterized by two parts that work similar to a slot sensor without the fork-like shape.

Banner Engineering offers a durable and reliable range of slot sensors that can meet a dynamic range of requirements, while holding up in industrial environments.

WLB32 Industrial LED Lighting Overview: Banner Engineering

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on May 29, 2018 1:26:47 PM

Industrial lighting has become a highly important topic of late as plant engineers realize the amount of parameters it influences, ranging from economic efficiency to ergonomics. Industrial lighting needs to be sturdy, efficient, and provide enough light to illuminate a plant floor without glare. Banner Engineering offers a light bar that does just that.

LED lights provide the ideal alternative to regular fluorescent lighting. Fluorescent lights are generally seen as energy efficient, but contain a highly toxic chemical that can make them difficult to dispose of when they stop working. LED lighting provides a higher energy efficiency without the toxic chemical in fluorescent lamps. LED lighting also doesn’t have a warm-up time after turning on, and can go to full brightness as soon as the switch is flipped.
